    Just started this one up.. had an old blaster kabaya model i never got to finishing and a deluxe classics P.O.S prime laying around and put two and two together... it should be fully transformable as i'm sacraficing kneee articulation to allow the transformation to work... now i just need to wait for Christmas as i think my wife got me a new dremmel.. heres the start of hopefully something beautiful!

    Dremel gets it done! I hope you get it dude. This has mountains of potential, I can't wait to see how it works out. I think you can keep the leg articulation with some clever additions. Take a look as some of the articulated full size Blasters for ideas. I bet you'll find something that you can use. It's a lot easier to find stray joints at Deluxe size than for a full sized Blaster. Believe you me

    Lookin' great already!

    Kabaya kits are the BEST for useful weird-scale fodder :) 

    That poor Prime mold takes a lot of flak, believe it or not, with a few minor mods he is my default Classics Prime.

    I have so wanted to find a Kabaya kit for Blaster...this is turning out well. POS Prime does not have that extra swivel joint that Classics Seekers have, if you ever get a hold of an extra one you should use those hips/legs and get that knee articulation back...otherwise this is a wonderful start!!!

    I have an extra classics starscream but im probably repainting him into TC since a board member wants my TC repaint. I know how thumbs down my collection looks missing a TC in thereso i offered it to him for a very reasonable price as i can always make another.. if the deal falls through maybe i'll use SS's legs.

    If anyone out there has an extra set of seeker legs i'll buy em though!

    also any of you radicons looking for parts i'll post all the loose bits left over from this project just cover shipping and they're whoever wants them!

    thanks for the comment guys! if it turns out good enough i'll lend him to anyone who wants to recast the figure for others to have one!

    thanks for the compliments! my prime was flimsy and utterly useless splitting in half right out of the package so it left a very sour taste in my mouth...
    i transform my tfs to robot mode out of package and display them. if they come packaged in robot mode i don't tf them for the most part maybe once just for the fun of it being a tf so for him to be that weak is why I personally call him a P.O.S. he'll get much more love as an in scale blaster for my collection :) 

    AND AGAIN THANKS!
